Inferior medullary velum

Dr Andrew Dixon and Dr Craig Hacking et al.

The inferior (or posterior) medullary velum is a thin sheet of tissue formed by ependyma and the pia mater of the tele choroidea. It stretches from the middle cerebellar peduncles to the inferior cerebellar peduncles and across the midline to form the roof of the fourth ventricle along with the superior medullary velum. The nodule of the cerebellum is located just inferior and lateral to the inferior medullary velum.
